    .

    this story could use some editing, but i do give credit where credit is due and getting any story like this told to as wide an audience as possible is laudable. i had never heard about this before, so i certainly felt it worth reading.

    Interesting but needs proofreading

    This short story was very interesting and I'm glad I read it. I didn't know anything about this disease before reading it and it reminded me how my grandmother let them autopsy her little boy when he died of leukemia, hoping it would help the other children. It was a hard decision to make since she was grieving. I liked the reminders at the end.

    This tragedy could have been avoided or at least mitigated if not for corporate greed. The contaminated waste water from the Chisso manufacturing plant poisoned the fish and shellfish that was the major food staple in the fishing hamlets. The company knew and hid the information. Parents unknowingly fed their children the contaminated fish. Every parent's nightmare.

    This book would be better if it was proofread and all the grammar errors corrected.
